Tweet This bit of Oakland News is, a more disturbing continuation of my Oakland Police Radio blog post of last week. It’s disturbing because several Oakland City staffers who I will not name are just plain massively pissed off with the Oakland City Council, and that includes Oakland Mayor Jean Quan right at the top. Faced with the need to spend $15...

Tweet UPDATE: Oakland A’s Move To San Jose Rejected By Major League Baseball. The Oakland Athletics as owned by Lew Wolfe are prohibited from moving to San Jose, both by Major League Baseball and by U.S. District Judge Ronald Whyte. The much written about, but little-understood-by-the-media court records specifically say, in black-and-white, that the...

Tweet UPDATE: Oakland News: Mayor Quan’s Woodminster Wheelchair Problem In “White v. Oakland” UPDATE: Oakland A’s Move To San Jose Rejected By Major League Baseball. This Oakland News entry may, no will, tick someone off. To that I say, good. The Oakland City Council Finance Committee is going to take up the issue of the long-moribund police radios....

Tweet This Oakland News is chocked full of a lot of stuff, so let’s get to it.

Taking on Rebecca is...

Tweet Nice to be back in Oakland, if only until Tuesday Night, when this blogger leaves for the NFL Draft. But this Earth Day has to be noted – lovely day. So much so that, rather than see this blog post, I hope you’re out at Church, or lunch, or doing something to celebrate this glorious Earth Day Sunday. Oakland Real Estate Recovering. Happened...

That marks the first time since the Coliseum was turned over to private sector management of any kind that SMG was moved out for another organization. SMG’s involvement...

Tweet In this Oakland News you can tell a lot about a candidate by not just their videos, but when they were uploaded. Rob Bonta is currently the front-runner for the California Assembly District 18 race, and it’s 2012. But the restless, ambitious Bonta (nothing wrong with that) put out this video in 2010 explaining why he would make a great Alameda City...

Tweet The Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Authority, or “Joint Powers Authority”, or “JPA” is known for its rather clubby politics, at times so much so that it leads many to question how it operates. One of those who’s done so, or formed a conclusion, is Oakland Tribune Reporter Angela Woodall. Woodall regularly covers the JPA,...
